SCI (Sodium Cocoyl Isothionate) sounds long and intimidating, but is the sodium salt of the fatty acid from coconuts. It’s a key ingredient in shampoos because it has excellent cleansing and foaming properties. It is given a 1 on EWG’s hazard score.
SLSa (NOT the same as SLS) is a mild plant-derived surfactant and acts as a foaming agent. It effectively removes dirt, oil, and bacteria without stripping hair of its natural oils. It is a large molecule ingredient and therefore cannot permeate the skin.
Yucca stimulates the scalp for growth and helps hair retain moisture. most effective as a scalp treatment because it contains saponins, which are cleansers that also reduce inflammation, itchiness, and dandruff. It will leave your hair very clean and also boost volume. Strands will look shiny, smooth, fuller, and healthier. It has anti0inflammatory and anti-fungal properties
